They are called shift solenoids and they are inside the transmission pan on the transmission valve body

Tranny locked in first gear


A/t box.
3speed or 4, they offered both in 1996.
my guess is the 4speed, which is electronically shifted
the car has TCM, if you unplug it (under dash) the Tranny swithes
to a manual trans, and you can shift it manually
see that trick here. (both)
http://www.fixkick.com/slush-pump.html

the --4 SPEED. 03-72LE
see it skip second gear in manual mode.....

when posting , always state tranny type
or show a photo of the shifter
or at the least tell all shifter , locations.

unique
4SP SHIFT CONSOLE LABELS: P R N D 2 L , 4sp has an OD button and a Power button. OD overdrive and PN (power /normal)


what to do?
check all fuses first.
reseat the TCM, look for damage in side it.
check fluid levels , read operators guide, never guess, or overfill it.
RTM; read the guide then act.
make sure shifter actually moves tanny lever to DRIVE.
bad cable, or is loose or damaged.

Dodge Dakota 2WD, 3.9 V6, has major hesitation shifting from 2nd to 3rd and also downshifts in and out of OD at about 55 to 60 mph.


Speed output sensor. Located on the tailend of the tranny. Replaced mine did wonders. Make sure you have the right sensor for your trans. May need to get the dealer to lookup your vin#.

O.D light blinks, won't shift, runs rough at low rpms 2003 F-150


This is likely your electronic speed sensor. On my 2003 F150 it would rev quite high before finally shifting into 2nd. and my O.D light would blink also. The speed sensor is located under the vehicle about halfway back on the frame on the passenger side. The part costs about $70 and is a fairly easy repair.

I have a 2000, there is a speed sensor located in top of the rear axel and I believe another on the tranny housing. Try the rear axel first.

Transmission trouble on 2002 Ford E-450 Super Duty


Hi, this is a defective OD shift solenoid that is located inside the trans pan. you will have to drop this pan in order to extract it for replacement. this solenoid, if damaged, cant initiate the shift sequence required for the OD to engage during operational procedures.

Simply replacing this solenoid will fix this issue.

NOw, concerning the erratic shifts. this is isolated within the transmission control module. it seems to be malfunctioning. you will need to replace this module as well.

1989 Lincoln Towncar 4 spd automatic with OD, will not go to OD


There is no OverDrive gear in the transmission. The fourth speed is achieved by locking up the torque converter while in third gear creating a input shaft to output shaft ratio of more than 1 (the infamous over drive). If you do not feel it shifting three times while accelerating up to 45 mph then there is probably a situation with the torque converter.
